Who will be voted Cincinnati's best celebrity dancer? Which stars have the right moves to rule the dance floor? Find out on Saturday, April 13, 2013 when the Cincinnati Arts Association (CAA) presents its seventh annual Dancing for the Stars at the Music Hall Ballroom to benefit CAA's Overture Awards - the nation's largest locally-run high school arts scholarship competition.
Inspired by the hit ABC-TV show Dancing with the Stars, Dancing for the Stars will feature eight Cincinnati celebrities paired with some of the area's finest professional dancers in a competition program, at which the audience will vote for their favorite celebrity dancer. The competitive dance for the evening will be the Samba, and each dance pair will have 90 seconds to woo the crowd and the judges.
In addition, Dancing for the Stars will feature:
· Silent auction
· Showcase performance by a 2013 Overture Award finalist in dance
· The swinging sounds of Sound Body Jazz Band
· Pre-event reception and wine tasting
· Open dancing before and after the competition
· Lite bites provided by some of Cincinnati's finest restaurants and caterers
· Cash bar
The event will benefit the stars of tomorrow - the talented high school artists who participate each year in CAA's Overture Awards. The Dancing for the Stars committee includes: Dr. Tracey Skale (chair, Dancing for the Stars 2011 winner), Phil Schworer, Christina Bolden, Terry Foster, Sue Gilkey, Jim Howland, Ginger Loftin, and Rosemary Schlachter.
